+openvas-libnasl 2.0-beta1 (2008-09-24)
+This release is a first beta version of the upcoming 2.0 release of OpenVAS.
+This release adds support for OpenVAS detection in plugins and introduce two
+new NASL functions to support the new LOG and DEBUG message type. These
+message types can be sent from within NASL using the log_message() and
+debug_message() commands. In addition, this release contains updated packaging
+files for Debian and completely rewritten command line parsing functionality
+for the openvas-nasl tool.
+OpenVAS 2.0 will introduce a full set of new modules for OpenVAS Server
+(openvas-libraries, openvas-libnasl and openvas-server) and the a new
+OpenVAS-Client. The only  module OpenVAS 1.0 and OpenVAS 2.0 will  share is
+openvas-plugins. This means that the OpenVAS NVT Feed is compatible with both
+generations of OpenVAS.
+However, in case you plan to try out the new generation of OpenVAS, you should
+install it separately from OpenVAS 1.0 installation. Instructions on how to do
+this will be added to the OpenVAS homepage after all relevant modules are
+released as 2.0-beta1. A separate announcement will officially start the beta
+testing phase for OpenVAS 2.0.
+Main changes in this release:
+* Updates of Debian packaging files.
+* New OPENVAS_NASL_LEVEL symbol enabling detection of OpenVAS in plugins.
+* Support for new LOG and DEBUG messages.
+* New command line parsing for openvas-nasl standalone NASL interpreter.
+Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Tim Brown, Jan
+Wagner, Jan-Oliver Wagner and Michael Wiegand
